My thinking was that if tomorrow Freescale released a 'm5442x' with 4 
enet-fecs then the same quirk would apply, but if it instead had a gigabit 
enet-fec we'd still need a new quirk anyway; what I want to avoid was given 
Freescale's fondness of producing varients, either using the wrong name for a 
chip - 'my m5442x says it has 5441x-fec?' or having a half dozen quirk 
entries that all selected the same feature.  But I dont have strong feelings 
about this, I just want the ethernet on my twr-mcf54418 to work.
